Fueling the perception that he is checked out of his job, President Obama admitted to ESPN that he only watches their network every morning.

While being interviewed on ESPNU’s ‘The Herd’, Obama quipped "I spend most of my time watching ESPN in the morning. I get so much politics. I don't wanna be inundated with a bunch of chatter about politics during the day."

It has been well established that Obama finds out about much of his own White House’s activities from news reports. So, this amusing disclosure begs the question: If Obama is now ignoring news channels, how will he ever know what’s going on in his administration?
